Signal Integrity Issues and Printed Circuit Board Design

Signal Integrity Issues and Printed Circuit Board Design PDF

Signal Integrity Issues and Printed Circuit Board Design – This book is primarily aimed at circuit board designers. Typically these people have either no formal engineering education or a 2-year associates degree. A few have formal 4-year degrees and find themselves now designing boards either on a part time basis (as an adjunct to their normal design activities) or perhaps full-time.

Almost none of them have ever received any formal education in signal integrity issues as related to board design, principally because almost no such training is offered–anywhere! Therefore, there is a need for a basic, comprehensive text that covers the causes of these problems and their solutions.

Signal Integrity Issues and Printed Circuit Board Design Douglas Brooks

The definitive high-speed design resource for every PCB designer

In this book, renowned engineer,author, and seminar leader Douglas Brooks teaches PCB designers how tosuccessfully design boards for any high-speed application. Brooks begins withan easy-to-understand electronics primer for every PCB designer, then offerspractical, real-world solutions for every important signal-integrity problem.Based on his legendary seminars, this book offers even more design rules,specific recommendations, examples, illustrations, and diagrams.

Coverage includes— 

  • Essential electronics concepts: propagation, current, resistance, reactance, impedance, phase shifts, and more
  • EMI principles and controls: loop area, uncontrolled differential currents, and common mode currents
  • Controlling signal reflections: transmission lines, proper terminations, and trace layer design
  • Power system stability (bypass capacitor decoupling): Traditional approaches, and techniques based on power-system impedance
  • Eliminating forward crosstalk, and eliminating or controlling backwards crosstalk
  • Power-system conditioning: power-system plane design and correct board stackups
  • Lossy lines and eye diagrams: skin effects, dielectric absorption, and more
